April is almost upon us, and that means Spring….or for those of us who blog, it is time for the A to Z blogging challenge.
For those of you, who haven’t heard about it, the A to Z challenge is a challenge for bloggers to post every day in April (except Sundays). Every day (Monday through Saturday) is matched with a letter of the alphabet. On the first day, you write about a topic that begins with A, the next day B and so on.
Now the organizers suggest you come up with a theme to help you get through the challenge. My first year (2014), I didn’t pick a theme. The next year, I did a theme of TV shows followed by characters in 2016, antagonists in 2017, songs about magic in 2018 and finally character flaws in 2019.
The key is to pick something that you will be able to find something for each letter. There are some hard letters – Q, X and Z in particular.
As a fantasy author, I like to connect my topics to something related to writing (characters/antagonists) or fantasy (magic). This year, I have chosen to write about daily comic strips. I may be dating myself but I grew up reading the daily “funnies.” There are a lot of good choices out there.
